Accenture Technology Vision for Oracle - 2016

  1. 1. People First: The Primacy of People in the Digital Age ACCENTURE TECHNOLOGY VISION FOR ORACLE 2016
  2. 2. Every year, the Technology Vision team partners with Accenture Research to pinpoint the emerging IT developments that will have the greatest impact on companies, government agencies, and other organizations in the next three to five years. As technology advancements continue to accelerate at an unprecedented rate - dramatically disrupting the workforce - companies that equip employees, partners and consumers with new skills can fully capitalize on these innovations. Those that do will have unmatched capabilities to continuously create fresh ideas, develop cutting-edge products and services, and disrupt the status quo.

  3. 3. Change is the new normal. According to our global technology survey of more than 3,100 IT and business executives, 86 percent of the executives anticipate that the pace of technology change will increase rapidly or at an unprecedented rate in their industry over the next three years. Many companies, already reeling from the impacts of technology and the changes they need to make in response, find themselves temporarily overwhelmed—some even paralyzed as they absorb the magnitude of the tasks ahead. Getting past the digital culture shock that so many businesses find themselves in today sounds daunting. But fortunately there are models already available for inspiration. Not only have many large tech companies established thriving digital cultures, but there are also early adopters in other industries showing the way ahead. Accenture Technology Vision We are in the midst of a major technology revolution, specifically a digital revolution. Our research model and analysis shows that digital is now dominating every sector of the economy. Copyright © 2016 Accenture. All rights reserved.
  4. 4. In 2015, the big question was no longer about digital transformation, but about what business leaders could do with their digital advantage—and how they could stretch their boundaries to get ahead of the competition. In 2016, leveraging the power of a digital business is no longer simply about incorporating technologies into the organization. It’s about reinventing the organization—and the culture within it—to drive innovation, to drive change, to drive the business into the next generation. With Oracle technologies residing at the heart of so many of the world’s largest organizations, their contribution to achieving this ‘People First’ agenda is growing more important all the time. In the Technology Vision for Oracle 2016, you’ll see how Accenture and Oracle are applying their individual strengths to enable organizations to carve out their places in the digital ecosystems that are defining their industries in the platform economy.

  5. 5. People First: The Primacy of People in the Digital Age Intelligent Automation Liquid Workforce Platform Economy Predictable Disruption Digital Trust 5 The Accenture Technology Vision 2016 identifies five technology trends fueled by the people first principle and that are essential to business success in the digital economy.

  6. 6. Trend 1 Intelligent Automation The essential new co-worker for the digital age 6Copyright © 2016 Accenture. All rights reserved. Intelligent automation is the launching pad for new growth and innovation. Powered by artificial intelligence, the next wave of solutions will gather unprecedented amounts of data from disparate systems and—by weaving systems, data and people together—create solutions that fundamentally change the organization, as well as what it does and how it does it.
  7. 7. The symbiotic relationship between technology and humans is far from being a vision of the future, however, it’s a relationship that’s already enabling some enterprises to leapfrog the competition. They’re doing this by using intelligent automation and it’s how this automation empowers people that’s the true source of its differentiating potential. Copyright © 2016 Accenture. All rights reserved. What we see with our Oracle lens: From Oracle’s cloud-based technologies, to on- premises infrastructure such as Oracle Engineered Systems, to software that’s been optimally tuned to work with the hardware, it’s a perfectly choreographed tango between hardware and software. In this chapter we explore how Accenture uses Oracle technologies to help clients embrace intelligent automation, Accenture’s DevOps for Oracle library, and purpose-built Oracle accelerators that ultimately empowers the rapid creation of new products and services on a scale that was previously unfeasible. www.accenture.com/techvisionfororacle
  8. 8. Trend 2 Liquid Workforce Building the workforce for today’s digital demands 8Copyright © 2016 Accenture. All rights reserved. By exploiting technology to enable workforce transformation, leading companies will create highly adaptable and change-ready enterprise environments that are able to meet today’s dynamic digital demands. This liquid workforce competitive advantage is apparent as IT and business executives surveyed report that “deep expertise for the specialized task at hand” was only the fifth most important characteristic they required for employees to perform well in a digital work environment – other qualities such as ‘the ability to quickly learn’ or ‘shift gears’ were ranked higher.
  9. 9. What matters now is how technology can be used to empower people and transform approaches to the workforce, creating new corporate cultures that can continuously adapt and learn, create new solutions, and drive relentless change. Accenture and Oracle are working together to help organizations develop and deliver their liquid workforce with Oracle’s HCM cloud by: • using analytics to deliver key insights into workforce capabilities and readiness • finding the right talent by using new sourcing channels and redefining “talent” • creating an agile workforce that’s built to and for change—and is rewarded for that agility • and enabling the ability of employees to learn and adapt in a fast-paced, collaborative environment. This chapter focuses on Accenture’s experience with Oracle’s HCM suite of products that enable workforce transformation by focusing technology on people’s skills, social networks and knowledge, transforming them an adaptable, change-ready, and passionate liquid workforce.

  10. 10. Trend 3 The Platform Economy Technology-driven business model innovation from the outside in 10Copyright © 2016 Accenture. All rights reserved. Industry leaders are unleashing technology’s power by developing platform-based business models and strategies to capture new growth opportunities, ultimately driving the most profound change in the global macroeconomic environment since the Industrial Revolution. This is reinforced by 81 percent of our survey respondents who agree that platform-based business models will become part of their organization’s core growth strategy within three years.
  11. 11. Instead of looking to new products and services to drive growth, platform businesses understand that it’s the platforms on which those same products and services are built that are the new engines of success. Operating in the platform economy requires rethinking not only the platform that your customers, stakeholders and others experience, but also transforming the internal technology infrastructures, services and tools that power your operations. In this chapter we look at how Accenture has not only embraced this rapid platform growth, but is a leader in the charge toward digital transformation with the formation of the Accenture Oracle Business Group, which brings to life our vision for an agile, connected and digital platform for our clients.

  12. 12. Trend 4 Predictable Disruption Looking to digital ecosystems for the next waves of change 12Copyright © 2016 Accenture. All rights reserved. Fast-emerging digital ecosystems are creating the foundation for the next big wave of enterprise disruptions by straddling markets and blurring industry boundaries; forward-thinking leaders can proactively predict these ecosystem trajectories to gain a competitive advantage. Companies are already significantly or moderately experiencing ecosystem disruption, with 81 percent of survey respondents indicating that they are seeing this in their industry.
  13. 13. Companies can no longer make predictions simply by looking at competitors in their industry. It pays to look at ways to meld existing traditional infrastructures with those that match data- driven leaders in any industry. Oracle plays a preeminent role in this space by maintaining a sure footing between its technological roots and a new world of larger-scale systems and open-source tools that drive business decision-making with vast amounts of data. In parallel, Accenture helps companies navigate this increasingly complex ecosystem, supporting the decision-making process along the path to becoming truly data-driven. This chapter explores how Accenture and Oracle can enable clients to connect data using the data-focused technologies Oracle offers, bringing a larger picture into focus from the more myopic tendencies of aging data platforms.

  14. 14. Trend 5 Digital Trust Strengthening customer relationships through ethics and security 14Copyright © 2016 Accenture. All rights reserved. Trust is a cornerstone of the digital economy, said 83 percent of survey respondents. To gain the trust of individuals, ecosystems and regulators in this new landscape, businesses must focus on digital ethics as a core strategy; better security, on its own, won’t be enough.
  15. 15. Success in tomorrow’s digital business will largely depend on security decisions made today. Organizations should manage data and digital ethics as core strategies for mitigating business risks, just as they do with cybersecurity. Their reward? Unprecedented growth in an interconnected platform economy with minimal downside risks. Those who master this transformation can move beyond the first level of customer trust to a higher level where empowered individuals trust a company to lead them into the digital future. This chapter explores how Accenture and Oracle address the core segments of data integrity, device security, application security, infrastructure security, business alignment, governance and compliance, identity management, and cyber defense management.
